In a new YouTube video, Kate Middleton made a touching phone call to a young cancer patient.

The Duchess of Cambridge spoke with Lynda Sneddon and her four-year-old daughter Mila, who featured in Kate’s Hold Still photography project.

During autumn 2020, Kate spoke to a number of the 100 finalists who shared their experiences of life during the first coronavirus lockdown in the UK by submitting a photo.

Mila’s image, titled Shielding Mila, showed her kissing a window as her dad stood outside.

Mila’s family made the decision to isolate from her father, Scott, and older sister Jodi, to protect her.

The little girl was receiving chemotherapy for leukaemia.

Opening the call with the Duchess, Mila sweetly said: “Good morning your royal highness.”

Kate replied: “Good morning. Goodness me, you’re so polite Mila.”

What did Kate Middleton say in the call?

Kate asked Mila what it was like to be away from her dad.

Mila replied that it was tough, and said of the moment they were reunited: “When he came into the house I was like, so surprised.”

She then asked the Duchess: “Do you have a costume?”

Kate said: “I’m not wearing a princess costume right now, I’m afraid Mila. Do you have lots of dressing-up outfits yourself?”

Mila said, “Yeah,” before telling Kate her favourite colour is pink.

Kate added: “OK, well I have to make sure I go and try and find myself a pink dress so that hopefully, when one day hopefully, Mila we’ll get to meet and then I’ll remember to wear my pink dress for you.

“Would that be nice?”

Mila then exclaimed: “Yay!”

The touching clip was shared to Kate and Prince William’s new YouTube channel.
